  1. Subject: “Ethiopian Airlines to build housing for 5000 employees ” March 16, 2024

    Humble. Opinion, 17 March 2024
    a) Amazing, Fantastic

    b). And the Greatest Good Example is definitely the only and only the Ethiopian

    c). I repeat: The history of Ethiopian Airlines is simply extraordinary


    e). Permit me to be emotional: EAL has developed its greatness starting from
    foreign employees (mostly. Americans) >>>> I stand to be correct.

    f). In any case, Ethiopia Airlines made a miracle:.

    g). It developed through parallel indigenous development, hence clearly
    minimizing the dependancy upon foreign experts.

    h). I stand to be corrected: There was only one foreign occupancy on the top most
    post of the Airline .

    i). In any case, the development of Ethiopian Alines is uniquely admirable,
    concentrating on internal employment on various Airline Tasks

    j). If we were to see development in other sectors in Ethiopia………………..I better stop

    k). And so, returning to EAL, I can only wish that Ethiopian Airlines be a symbol,
    an example, a guidance to others in the Ancient, Independent, Free
    Country named ETHIOPIA. .

  2. Somebody asked somebody ‘what is the name of your country’s airline? The name of our airline is such and such and all its aircrafts are powered by the most powerful engine to-date.’ ‘What is that?’ ‘A malnourished horse’ was the answer. Who said ‘horsepower’ is a thing of the past? Just look around.

  3. Somebody asked somebody a proverbial question: ‘How many houses is the airline in your country building for its employees?’ The honest answer was ‘We have no airline. We have buggies powered by emaciated mules and donkeys. horses have extirpated decades ago in my country’. We use them to take away bodies of prisoners who died in container prisons’. Sorry, I need to stop here.
